Abstract: In the CAR team at Ecole des Mines de Douai (Lille Area, Northern France), we study mobile and autonomous robotics from two complementary perspectives: Software Engineering (SE) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). From the SE perspective, we study software architectures, infrastructures and tools for controlling individual robots. We focus on reflective and dynamic languages, as well as component models, for a modular and agile development of robotic software architectures. From the AI perspective, we study coordination and cooperation in robotic fleets. We mainly focus on communication models as well as emerging or predefined organizations for multi-agent robotic systems. In this presentation we will give an overview of some of our recent Smalltalk-based solutions we have been developping for both single robots and multi-robot fleets. We illustrate each contribution with experiments we have been conducting that iillustrate targeted applications.
Bio: Dr. Noury Bouraqadi is a permanent associate professor at the Ecole des Mines de Douai. He earned a PhD degree in Software Engineering from the University of Nantes (France) in 1999, while he was working as an independent software developer. In 2001, he joined the Ecole des Mines de Douai where he introduced mobile robotics as a central topic for the CAR (Components, Agents and Robotics, http://car.mines-douai.fr) research team.
